Paris in the Fall

Fall is definitely here, in Paris. Leaves are blowing around on the ground, it has been periodically very chilly, with the occasional warmer day in between. But Fall is definitely in the air. I love being here then…..and in the irresistible Paris spring……and in the snow in winter. What’s not to love in Paris??? It’s so incredibly beautiful. The buildings, the parks, the balmy weather in spring and fall, the gorgeous snow that always seems so romantic to me. I love it, it looks like post cards when it snows here. So I’m back in Paris, enjoying the fall, with a million things to do here. I went to three art fairs this weekend, have been working on my books and music. I went to the flea market on Sunday, which is overwhelming but intriguing, with stall after stall of either antiques, or yard sale junk that is fascinating to dig through. I was actually doing research for my next book and found just what I needed (after about 3 hours of wandering and digging). I’ve gone to my favorite auction house too, which I always love. I’ve had lunch and dinner with friends. And I brought Halloween costumes to a friend’s children here, since Halloween is not a big event in France, and is only a recent acquisition in France, but still not a big deal here.  Mostly, I’m just enjoying being here, working, relaxing, seeing friends. It’s more peaceful writing here than in San Francisco, and I dont push quite as hard.  In San Francisco, my work pace is intense.  Kids have a 2 week vacation from school here at this time of year, so a lot of people are away, which makes Paris more peaceful too. I’m having a really nice time, and working on new books for you!!!

Love, Danielle

    Autumn + Paris just might be one of the most beautifully romantic combinations ever.

    I admire your writing abilities. I am soon to be 66
    and will be beginning my writing career. I would be
    very interested in seeing you write a book describing
    the whole process of beginning to end when you write a
    new book. Also, I would like to know how you make writing fun. All the writing I have done was agony.
    I have been told that what I have written is well done,
    but it was no fun doing it. I have four books in me, but how to get them complete AND having fun doing it is something I can’t figure out. How do YOU make writing fun????

    I love to read your books, I have read about all that you have written so far. Keep up the good work. I am 71 years old and starting to take classes in Air Brushing. It’s a lot of fun.

    Dear Danielle
    I do so love your books, they hold many treasured spots on my bookshelves. Reading your comments about Paris in the Fall made me feel as though I were there, enjoying its romance. I have only visited Paris in the Spring and adored it, it’s a wonderful city. I’m looking forward to visiting again this year in the Spring, coming from the far side of the world, from New Zealand, with our opposite seasons.
    May 2012 be a particularly wonderful year for you.
    Kindest regards
